STILL TOGGIN’

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
Although this year feels like it’s going to come to an abrupt end, the weather just won’t give us more than a day—two at the most—before it howls, pours, snows or drops into the teens! Stripers and blackfish have been the only target for the past week or more. Striper ...

EASE THE WIND

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
For the third week in a row, or is the fourth, I am writing about the wind. This has been THE windiest fall I can remember. And it seems like the relentless wind has dropped the water temps much faster than anyone expected. The porgy season is, pretty much, over. ...

WEATHER WINDOWS

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
Okay, what’s the deal with all this wind? I woke up Saturday morning and it sounded like my house was being power washed. If you’re expecting to get in a few more good days of fishing you better work on a rotating schedule or learn how to disappear. The forecast ...

UNCLE!

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
Good grief! Another week of wind and waves and then a massive nor’easter to top it all off, sometimes it feels like Mother Nature just wants us to give the fish a rest! History tells us that the albie bite will likely be over as the dust settles in the ...

DUST IN THE WIND

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
Man was it windy last week, and the NOAA forecast isn’t looking too hot for this week either. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my 20-plus years of fishing hard in the salt it’s that complacency doesn’t play. I can’t say that I never fall victim to its temptations, ...

COLD SNAP

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
Things are about to get decidedly fall-like here in New England. I’m sure you’ve already felt it, maybe you’ve put the comforter back on the bed or lit the woodstove for the first time since May, but it’s coming. We’ve had a very summerlike fall so far and this has ...

SLOW DRIP & TOG

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
Well, we didn’t see a major invasion of big bass, but we did see many more big ones than last week, so I’m calling that a modest victory, plus we still have the downside of the dark moon, which has been better to me historically, especially in the Fall. I ...

DON’T SLEEP

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
This is a funny time of year, and that’s not a play on the ‘funny fish’ fever that’s overtaken the land. It’s funny because it often still feels like summer and can lull you to sleep in a sense. Some people don’t get ‘up’ for the fall run until it ...

AND… IT’S FALL

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
It feels like fall, the weather is unpredictable like fall, I made pot roast the other night, the fish are eating like it’s fall so… it’s fall. Albies are in full swing in the eastern Sound and have made their presence known as far west as Norwalk. I don’t think ...

COOL RUNNINGS

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
It’s been a bit of wild week with at least one day of cool weather, hot weather, windy weather, big seas… we’ve had it all. As the general feeling in the air has become more and more ‘fall-like’, the fishing has mirrored it. Schoolie bass have come to life all ...
